a Nature Retreat near the city

a Nature Retreat near the city

Auckland, New Zealand

A furnished two-bedroom apartment not far from Auckland CBD. Close to the city but a million miles away! Forest setting.

Nestled in Kauri Park (a native tree forest) you can relax and unwind in the peaceful surroundings yet still be reasonably handy to downtown Auckland. There are also some great conveniences like a great coffee shop and a supermarket nearby. It's close to the city but a million miles away. You could say it's the best of both worlds! The apartment is fully furnished, self-contained and has it's own

[10/18/16]   Alas our time hosting people from around the world is coming to an end.
The house has been sold and we are moving on to bigger and better things. The new owners do not want to offer short-term visitor accomodation so our last guests will check out on November third.
It's been a great experience for us over the last three years or so and we thank everyone who has supported us by staying at "a Nature Retreat near the city" and especially to those who stayed and then wrote nice reviews about us, their stay and "a Nature Retreat".
Safe travels,
Bryce, Rosida, Charlotte, Ethan and Bob the grumpy cat.
